About the Course:
Since Antiquity, scholars have appreciated the importance of communication: as social beings, we cannot exist without communication. We need to interact with people around us, to make sense of the world and to position ourselves in a wider social and cultural reality.
This course looks at how and why communication evolved as a science and reflect on today's dominant paradigms. The course also extends beyond the boundaries of communication science itself, exploring dimensions of history, sociology and psychology. Join the class, together with people all over the world.
Classes will commence from 15th January 2014.
